Minion Easter Eggs

Seriously, how cute are these?

We decided to dye eggs a little early this year, so we could actually enjoy them before Easter.

Isaiah LOVES Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2. Actually, it’s “Be-Spip-Able Me” according to him. His voice melts me these days…

Anyway, he flipped when I made these for him. And they couldn’t have been easier.

All you need is eggs, dye (blue, yellow, and purple), a Sharpie, a white paint pen, and a cotton ball.

For the regular minions: dye one half at a time (bottom blue, top yellow) making sure each half is dry before starting the other. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect. The point here is to have fun creating.

For the crazy minions: dye both the egg and cotton ball purple. (Note: you may want to dye the cotton ball the night before, since it will take quite a while to air dry.)

Once all the eggs are completely dry, make the eyes with the white paint pen. Then use the Sharpie to finish the eyes, goggles and mouth. And of course…crazy hair. (Just hot glue the cotton ball for the crazy minion)

Ta-Da!

I think we made Kevin. And Bob. At least, that’s what Isaiah is calling them. Of course, then he wanted Gru. And Lucy. And El Macho…

A Mother’s work is never done.

“Happy” Easter! ;)

    hiya, love this idea and want to try it with my boys, could I ask how you prepared the eggs? Did you stick a pin in and empty the inside ? Thank you

    This is such a great idea. Love it. I have a couple of other ways that you can dye your easter eggs this year with cool patterns on them.

    We tried the natural egg dying last year, and we had so much fun doing it. It was also fun to see how the eggs would turn out being dyed with different veggies and fruits. We shot a little video about it too if you want to see it:

    This past weekend, we tried something new this year. We decided to make plant prints on our easter eggs using plant leaves and nylon stockings to dye it. They came out really neat and was easy and fun to do with kids. Here a video of that one:

    I hope you guys have a Happy Easter this year and your eggs come out looking great. Tweet me pics of your eggs if you’re on twitter!

    Did the sharpie bleed through to the egg? Or could you still eat the eggs?
